Details

Reduce over-testing. Protect our rights. Reduce class size. Save Teachers Jobs.

The future of public education in LA is uncertain. The district must decide during this contract campaign if they are on the side of parents, students and educators, or if they will join the ranks of those who want to close public schools, fire educators and destroy public education. We have been working without a contract for almost one year, and even with a $1.7 billion projected reserve, LAUSD refuses to bargain key issues, including:

 

  • A FAIR PAY RAISE

  • CHARTER AND CO-LOCATION REGULATION

  • SMALLER CLASS SIZES

  • REAL SUPPORT FOR SCHOOL SAFETY

  • MORE NURSES, COUNSELORS,PSYCHOLOGISTS, AND LIBRARIANS

  • COMMUNITY SCHOOLS & SUPPORT FOR FAMILIES

  • LESS TESTING & MORE TEACHING

 

UTLA is part of a national movement to address a crisis we have been living with for too long: Public education is criminally underfunded. Like Oklahoma, Kentucky and West Virginia, LAUSD faces a tipping point. Decades of underfunding have left California 46 out of 50 in per-pupil funding. Will the misplaced priorities at the local and state level shift in time to save our school district? UTLA’s contract demands aim to do just that. We demand that our employer move on these key bargaining issues and that state per pupil funding be increased to $20,000 by 2020. The future of public education in Los Angeles depends on it.
